LOVE, DAD with FATHERLESS TO FATHERHOOD
Love,Dad (SHORT that screens before the feature 20min)
'Love, Dad' is the story of career criminal James Gardner, who estimates that between 1970 and 1999, he committed over a thousand burglaries and stole close to $4 million in property. Gardner felt at the time that his life was one big adventure, but he soon found out that it was hardly an adventure to the family he left behind during his 30 years in prison. To them, it was nothing short of abandonment and embarrassment. This documentary short takes a trip through Gardner's past as he visits family and the mentor who helped turn his life around, and examines the impact of his absence on loved ones, and his attempts at reformation, reconciliation and making up for lost time.
